Wilson Audio unveils the Alexia Speaker System
We haven’t heard anything of Wilson Audio since their last presentation of the Sasha W/P, back in 2009. Happily, we have received news of something brand new – Wilson Audio’s modular speaker system named Alexia. The project has reportedly taken a full year of development and research, but the result is well worth the while.
A bit taller than the older Sasha W/P, the set resembles the design of its predecessor. The Alexia boasts with a tri-modular manufacture, facilitating micro adjustments for all the three driver groups. The speakers measure 1,352 millimeters in height, variable though, 537 mm in depth and 387 mm in width, and weigh 116 kg.
Sporting a tweeter speaker, midrange and woofer, the Alexia includes a bass enclosure entirely crafted from the famous X Material of Wilson Audio, with and extensive bracing system and system walls, creating a better environment for the bass drivers to perform. In addition, Wilson Audio has developed two brand new bass drivers, a 254 mm one and a 208 mm.
For the tweeter and midrange though, they’ve chosen a combination of X Material with S Material, exactly the one introduced alongside the Sasha W/P. A revised, newly developed driver will take care of the high frequencies, Alexandria XLF’s Convergent Synergy Tweeter.
The technical details aren’t entirely certain at the moment, but the set boasts with a frequency response range between 20 Hz and 32 kHz, +/- 3 dB, impedance of 4 ohms with a minimum of 2 ohms at 80 Hz and sensitivity of 90dBSPL. The price for such a set of speakers has been confirmed to be $48,500. They will be distributed starting the middle of November, for the US.
